Student Petitions and Instructions

The policy of the Fulton School is that, absent very unusual circumstances, students must add all courses, drop all courses, request a change in grading (pass/fail, audit), credits for a course (when applicable) by the end of the drop/add period at the beginning of the semester.  Please see the University Calendar for important dates.

Please follow the link below to download petition instructions.  In order to ensure a timely review, please follow each step within the appropriate instructions.  A petition request is not considered complete until each step has been successfully completed by the initiating student.  All requests should be submitted to the office of the Fulton advising coordinator, Jonathan Colón in FH 256.
